- Over 4 million people in Australia have some form of disability 
- Vision Australia estimates there are currently 357,000 people in Australia who are blind or have low vision 
- An estimate of annual expenditure by tourists with a disability (both overnight and day) based on NVS data would be around $3.2 billion annually 
- 45% of the population will experience a mental health condition during their lifetime 
- 3 million Australians live with depression or anxiety 
Many of these people face significant challenges when it comes to simply taking part in everyday activities.
Policies and legislation demonstrate the need to reduce barriers to community participation. We see the inclusion of ramps, rails, accessible restrooms, accessible paths of travel, wheelchair passing spaces in corridors, signage etc. but with 90% of disabilities being invisible, ask yourself, have you provided adequate support to reduce invisible barriers for participation?
Being immersed within the disability sector has afforded Access Ability Australia opportunities to form alliances with other organisations and associations within the same industry. When you partner with Access Ability Australia, you have access to a team with over 80 years industry experience.
With Access Ability Australia’s products and services, you have peace of mind knowing that you are responding to changing markets and providing a more accessible, inclusive and flexible approach to supporting your visitors.
We are committed to providing a first-class service. We liaise with key stakeholders to ensure our products include all relevant and required information to inspire and inform visitors.
To complement inclusive practices and to provide organisations with a flexible approach to customer service, we encourage you to look our range of resources and to consider these innovative tools as gifts of confidence for your visitors. The market for your industry is much broader than just diagnosed disability statistics – a very wide audience can benefit from improved information.
